First Reading: 2 Samuel 1:1-4.11-12.19.23-27

A reading from the Second Book of Samuel.

In those days:
After the death of Saul,
when David had returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites,
David remained two days in Ziklag;
and on the third day, behold, a man came from Saul’s camp,
with his clothes torn and earth upon his head.
And when he came to David,
he fell to the ground and did obeisance.
David said to him, “Where do you come from?”

And he said to him,
“I have escaped from the camp of Israel.”
And David said to him,
“How did it go? Tell me.”

And he answered,
“The people have fled from the battle,
and many of the people also have fallen and are dead,
and Saul and his son Jonathan are also dead.”
Then David took hold of his clothes, and tore them;
and so did all the men who were with him;
and they mourned and wept and fasted until evening
for Saul and for Jonathan his son
and for the people of the Lord and for the house of Israel
because they had fallen by the sword.

(And David said)
“Your glory, O Israel, is slain upon your high places!
How are the mighty fallen!

“Saul and Jonathan, beloved and lovely!
In life and in death they were not divided;
they were swifter than eagles,
they were stronger than lions.

“Ye daughters of Israel, weep over Saul,
who clothed you daintily in scarlet,
who put ornaments of gold upon your apparel.

“How are the mighty fallen
in the midst of the battle!

“Jonathan lies slain upon your high places.
I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan;
very pleasant have you been to me;
your love to me was wonderful,
passing the love of women.

“How are the mighty fallen,
and the weapons of war perished!”

The Word of the Lord.



Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 80:2-3.5-7 (R. 4b)

Let us now pray the Responsorial Psalm:

R/. Let your face shine on us, Lord,
and we shall be saved.

O shepherd of Israel, hear us,
you who lead Joseph like a flock:
enthroned on the cherubim, shine forth
upon Ephraim, Benjamin, Manasseh.
Rouse up your might and come to save us.

How long, O Lord, God of hosts,
will you be angry at the prayer of your people?
You have fed them with tears for their bread,
an abundance of tears for their drink.
You have made us the taunt of our neighbours;
our foes mock us among themselves.

R/. Let your face shine on us, Lord,
and we shall be saved.


Please stand for the Gospel.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
Open our hearts, O Lord,
that we may give heed to the words of your Son.



Gospel: Mark 3:20-21

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.

In that time:
Jesus went home with his disciples,
and the crowd came together again
so that they could not even eat.
And when his friends heard it,
they went out to seize him,
for they said, “He is beside himself.”

The Gospel of the Lord.


Communion Antiphon.
Of you are told glorious things, O Virgin Mary, for he who is mighty has done great things for you.
